For almost a year now, my workshop floor has been bare concrete (other than a few anti-fatigue mats). It’s not ideal for either knees or tools, and I hold my breath every time something drops to the floor. But no longer. My workshop has a wood floor now!
After about 5 hours of work, and for the low, low price of about $350 (plus the lunch I bought my buddy from work), I no longer have to pray in slow motion every time a marking gauge or chisel rolls off the workbench.
The DriCore tongue and groove panels were super easy to install. It’s night and day from the old concrete surface. I even did the pine trim boards. The room even feels brighter, now that the black concrete floor is hidden. In case you forgot what the old floor looked like, see the contrast.
For now, I will leave it bare. I’d like to see how well it wears before I go overboard. BTW, I know it’s been a full month since my last post. I’ve been preoccupied with non-woodworking tasks, but am hoping to get back on the horse soon.
